20 Years of Triple J’s Hottest 100 Votes

My votes for Triple J’s 20 Years of Hottest 100 are below! I decided to keep things interesting (and make decisions a little easier) by selecting only one song for each of the last twenty years, which did require omitting some great songs. It was a good opportunity to delve back into my own musical history over the last twenty years. I’ve discussed my picks in more detail over at TripleJae (along with my partner’s picks and justification) since trying to do justice to twenty songs in two hundred words is, frankly, impossible.

1996: Underworld – Born Slippy .nuxx
